People who were thrust into working from home during the coronavirus pandemic have been looking for ways to make themselves a comfortable workspace.

While some may have a dedicated room they have turned into their home office, others may be struggling for space and fighting with their partner, housemates or even kids, for a quiet space to do their 9 to 5.

Research has found some have been turning to sheds, or investing in an outhouse, for room to think during their working hours.

Speaking to the BBC, Terry Waldron, managing director of online shed company Waltons, revealed a 300% increase in sales of garden structures since the first lockdown in March 2020.

Estate agent Savills has also found 57% of buyers have stressed the importance of a separate working space to work from home, when buying a property.

So, if you have the garden space to create your own work-from-home office outdoors, what are your options?

From small and affordable potting sheds, to luxurious outhouses that will last a lifetime, here are the best options out there.
